Wordle game help: 5-letter words with ‘I’ and ‘T’

It's a long list.

For longtime Wordle players, most days will be easy enough. Each day, the game will pick a different five-letter word to guess in up to six tries. Maybe, by now, you have even found or developed a strategy that can guarantee your win, like having a specific set of words to try first. Those tend to be the key because there are no clues except the letters in the guesses—they change colors to indicate where (and if) they are in the word.

But in case you’re feeling stuck or your strategy isn’t taking you as far as you wanted, you can check out word lists that fit the clues you already have. For example, if you only found the letters “I” and “T.” If that is your case, the list below should help give you some inspiration.

Since you already found a vowel, there’s a chance it will be the only one in the word, so checking for more vowels might not be useful. If you still want to do that and feel like it could help, this guide has some suggestions of words you can use. But perhaps the most useful strategy right now is to try words with the letters that appear the most frequently on the list above, including consonants and some other vowels.

Those are, respectively, “S,” “E,” and “R.” Keep in mind plural forms will never be the answer to the Wordle puzzle, so you should avoid them if you’re running low on guesses.

If you’re still unsure and don’t want to wait until Wordle resets at midnight local time, you can always look up the answer to today’s puzzle (which we update around 12am CT).
